Audio Description and Touch Tour An audio describer provides a live commentary of the visual elements of a performance which is broadcast through a personal headset. They will describe the action such as where the characters are on stage, what they’re wearing, how they gesture and what the set looks like, without intruding on the actors’ dialogue. The commentary begins 15 minutes before the curtain rises. Prior to an Audio Described performance, a Touch Tour offers people who are blind or partially sighted the opportunity to get up close to a selection of costumes and props. The describer gives a full account of the items that you are introduced to and how they feature in the performance. Tickets for Touch Tours are free but must be booked in advance.
